Cider-colored pour. Aroma is smokey-applish. Odd. Flavor is burnt smoky, ciderish. Strong whiskey, and bitter fruit. Kinda bad tasting. Really thin.

Bottle. They most have lost a bet when they bottleted this one. Pours the color and visage of Metamucil. Big malt and especially Pete on this one. Itís like someone defecated and then wrapped the shit in bacon. Flat, no head. Tastes lime skunky scotch. Lingers. What the fuck?!?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to the ever generous madmitch76. Best before 18/12/09....... It pours hazy golden orange, with a thin bubbly white head. The nose is dominated by islay whisky character, deeply smokey, hay, TCP , permanent marker and peat. The taste is initially sweet orange, peach and marmalade, then the whisky sets in: smoke, peat, hay and floral notes, with a bitter finish. Medium body and low carbonation. This tastes a lot smoother than it did when I had it fresh. Considering how old this is itís actually pretty alright.

The time spent in the scotch casks can clearly be tasted and while I find it great in concept, I found it lacking in the final product. -still worth trying but not necessarily worth repeating.

Pale golden color, no head as this is a still beverage. Definitely taste the scotch but perhaps almost too much. It tastes like a watered down islay scotch.

Wasnít exactly what I expected. Donít care for the flavor of this one but to each their own. Do not like the smokiness background of it. Had much better from brew dog.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
11.2oz bottle poured into a tulip. Best before 2/2/10 Pours a lightly cloudy weird brownish color. Aroma is watered down whisky. Taste is whisky. Like watered down Johnnie Walker Green. Light bodied with a thin watery texture. Zero carbonation and a long finish. Overall, wow. This is not beer at all, but watery whisky. Not sure what to think about it other than Iím pretty sure I like it.

Pours a light cloudy yellow. Aroma is strong with single malt scotch overtones. Taste is minutely sweet in the front quickly overpowered by the smokey and stinging scotch flavors. The finish shows the ABV through some subtle burn.

Bottle from Brewdog.com. The first time I had this, I was utterly confused and horrified. After a while though, I grew to quite like, I think if the base was hardcore it could have been pretty special.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild pine and hints of oak and whiskey. Taste is malty sweet with some piney hop bitterness as well as some oak and whiskey. Does not quite taste like a traditional IPA, but who cares, this is quite a tasty beer.
